Emerick has a book coming out? Fantastic!

Just Neil Aspinall to go then.

However, no more arguments. Macca played 99% of the solos. 'Nuff said. End of story. "Period".

Is this why George didn't have particularly fond memories of the album?

Absolutely, James. He felt sidelined and and as if he didn't really have a role during the Pepper sessions. According to G. Martin, George would spend hours (e.g. on the title track) carefully, meticulously, methodically and painstakingly working out every note of a solo. Then, later in the session, Macca would wipe it all and come up with a pithy, inventive solo in seconds to replace George's. While it's easy to feel sorry for George, Paul was so adept at thinking up musical brilliance on the spur of the moment.
There was, of course, a precedence for great Macca solos and lead guitar flourishes, e.g. The Night Before: Macca
Ticket To Ride: all Macca lead guitar
Another Girl: Macca lead guitar
Michelle: lead guitar solo (he actually used a bass to get that sound)
Taxman: solo.
So, it's hardly surprising that Macca went on to perform most of the lead guitar work on an album that was, in effect, very much HIS baby.

Apparently Dylan saw little merit in Sgt. Pepper's...

Source: Dylan: Visions, portraits, and back pages

Loathing the artificiality of phychedelia, he found little merit in the McCartney-esque soundscapes of Sgt PEpper. "Turn that ***censored*** off!" was his reported verdict.

I liked Dylan better when he was mysterious, now there's the problem of TMI. His art is way better than his commentary on other's art. Bob has had many strange phases, in his personal life and my reaction has been similar to his about Pepper..........But I love most of his music and glad he is who he is, I just don't parrot or worship everything he says or does....and he likes that!

Indispensible icon.

I have yet to see Macca put as much energy into a solo project, as he did with Sgt.pepper.

Mabye his next album can be "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Man"..

I don´t think it is a easy as that. I think Macca tries his best every time he records e new record.
Now junior behave yourself
